Join us on the Waccamaw River for an introductory to kayaking course! This approximately 3 hour course covers all basics you should know before venturing out on your own.
Course will include: How to enter/exit your craft, maneuvering your craft, holding the paddle, proper paddling techniques including the forward stroke, turning strokes and the boat control strokes so you can get your boat where you want it to go when you want it to go there. You will learn how to create a Float Plan in the case of an emergency, and what to do when Mother Nature sneaks up on you!
This is NOT a pass or fail class; it is simply intended to ensure you experience a safe, fun time on the water!
